The Palin Kool-Aid Crowd

The similarities between those who actually (want to?) believe that Sarah Palin is qualified to be a heartbeat from the Presidency, and those who willingly (mainly) drank the grape Kool-Aid (technically, it was “Flavor Aid”) in Jonestown Guyana, back in 1978, are more than a little scary.  Both involve(d) a level of brainwashing that boggles the mind!  The folks in the “Peoples Temple Agricultural Project” were made to believe that Jim Jones was the Messiah, and that he was leading them to the promised land.  The people who support Ms. Palin do so with the same kind of religious fervor, and a general lack of rationality.  The people in Jonestown were willing to sacrifice their lives, and the lives of their children, in order to reach their brand of Nirvana.  I don’t think that most of the Palin-ites have seriously thought through where She might take them.  Saradise?    But, I do hope that they have considered their children.

Like with cyanide, and most other poisons, there is an antidote for the Palin-ites.  You really can’t afford to wait too long to take it.  But, first you have to realize that you’ve been poisoned.

Paulson’s Phishing Expedition (NOT Sarah Palin E-mail)

I get SO much great stuff in my e-mail!  This isn’t Sarah Palin related, but it certainly IS topical.  I have no idea who actually wrote it, but it deserves *publishing*.  If I find out the author, and they don’t mind taking credit, I’ll give them their due.   YUR

I call this:  Paulson’s Phishing Expedition

“Dear American:

I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude.

I am Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America. My country has had crisis that has caused the need for large transfer of funds of $800,000,000,000 US. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be most profitable to you.

I am working with Mr. Phil Gramm, vice-chairman for UBS investment bank, who will be my replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As Senator, you may know Mr. Gramm as the gracious leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s and the great creator of the Enron loophole in 2000, which deregulated energy resources. Understand that Mr. Gramm is an honorable man and this transaction you make is 100% safe.

This is a matter of great urgency. We need a blank check. We need the funds as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer these funds in the names of our close friends because we are constantly under surveillance. My family lawyer advised me that I should look for a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred.

Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to wallstreetbailout@ustreas.gov so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction. After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.

Yours Faithfully,


Minister of Treasury Paulson”

How Many Newspapers Will Run This Photo?

This is happening today, 09/23/08, in Washington D.C., on a 35 foot ledge of the National Archive Building.  I, personally, think they should be including Karl Rove somewhere on their banner.  Dick and Duh-bya couldn’t have done . . . anything, without Baby Huey’s help!   YUR
